. >> greta: did the hearing answer the burning question, why can't the obama administration get its story straight? former u.n. ambassador john bolton is here. so, are you satisfied? >> no, look, the administration made up its mind what the reality was, whether it was engagedin a coverup, whether it was ideology that dominated the view, whether it was incompetence, at this point, we don't know the answer to that. but we know one thing, unmistakeably. they were flatly wrong. they got it wrong before the attack, they got it wrong after the attack. they are getting it wrong now. so we psychoanalyze them all we want, but this is a demonstration, these people cannot be left in the same room with national security. >> greta: you say they are getting wrong, they have got it wrong, but it's more than that. why are they still dog it? why are they still trying to sell us that? jay carney today, in the statements he made today, initial assessment and the immediate aftermath of the attack in benghazi were made, it was a government-wide assessment that the foundation of what ambassador rice said, was

of the "new york times"? it wouldn't have made the obama administration look bad. if the bush administration, like eric nordstrom he would have been on every talk show being interviewed. instead you have to go to power line and national review and jennifer rubin to find out what he had to say. >> jon: do you agree with that? if our diplomats had been killed overseas it would have been leading the news for weeks? >> i think it's a news story and i think it was a news story. the question is, why wasn't it on the front page of certain papers? it's all over the news. in fact it was the lead question at the vice presidential debate. what strikes me is that the media is or are part of a political structure in the midst of a campaign. and the campaign for the romney team is very clear they see a vulnerability on obama's parted on foreign policy. they are using this story in particular and the media has to now decide what is the political attack, what it's at legitimate attack? >> if the obama campaign is trying to minimize the blow back from this, are the media helping them do this? >> duh -- yes,

, situation here where the obama administration blew it. and are actually accusing the administration of misleading the public. the obama administration denies that. hindsight is 20/20. but there's no doubt about it. there were requests they didn't feel safe. they needed more. let's face it. the facts play out that they had, very good suspicion and they were right. >> and this was not a good time for the hearing, for the obama administration. >> no. >> especially 20-something days away from the election. >> got that right. >> tough. >>> talk about lawyers and jerry sandusky, they say they will fight the attempts to take away his penn state pension. the retirement pension told sandusky will no longer receive $4,900 monthly check. in light of his conviction on child sex charges. sandusky received a total of $900,000 in pension payments between his retirement in 1999 and last month. >> wow. >> that's -- that's a sweet retirement deal. >> $900,000. >> that's a lot. wow. >> apparently the decision rests on analysis that he remained a de facto employee of penn state in the years after his 1

a fire storm questioning the numbers and whether the obama administration manipulated the numbers. jack welch didn't back down. he said for those who like me to pipe down. the 7 numbers are not plausible and that's why i made a stink about it the only thing he would change about the initial tweets. he might have added a question mark. >> i flat out agree with jack walch. those numbers released by the government are unbelievable . they created enormous skepticism they are so convenient. a survey of 60,000 households miraclously finds 183,000 people who returned to work four weeks before the election. that is unbelievable. >> gretchen: jack welch said there was not a surge of un-- employment. >> it betrays a totallyy false picture of america's economy. right now our economy is not doing well. unemployment numbers suggest it has been a surge in our economy that is simply not true. >> gretchen: just so our viewers understand. the objective? >> no, there is a element of subjectivity. >> gretchen: you call up people and you say are you employed or not or part-time job or full-time job. >> you

the withdrawal, which was we agreed with the obama administration. let's have a status of forces agreement to make sure that we secure our gains. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama. and he failed to get the agreement. we don't have a status of force agreement because they failed to get one. that's what we are talking about. and when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude for what they have done for us, including your son, beau. but we also want to make sure that we don't lose the things that we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan, the 2014 deadline, we agree with the 2014 transition. but what we also want to do is make sure that we're not projecting weakness abroad, and that's what's happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but unfortunately it's indicative of a broader problem, and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. which is making it more chaotic and us less safe. >> i just want to talk to you about right in the midd
for a moment now. last night vice president biden said the obama administration was not told of requests for more security in the run-up to the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. republicans pounced on that claim pointing to testimony the day before from the state department officials that said there had been earlier requests for more security staffing. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington with more on all this. the catherine. >> reporter: good morning. on libya the vice president blamed the intelligence community for bad assessments that informed the administration public and controversyal statements about the attack and suggested the white house was unaware for more requests on the ground in libya. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. by the way, at the time we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community towed us. that they knew. that was the assessment. and as the intelligence community changed their view, we made it clear they changed their view. that's
maneuvering going on in this administration. look, president obama clearly can not run on the economy so he is trying to run on national security issues by claiming we have al qaeda back on its heels. we now know that is not true. so now he is really in a box because i think a lot of people suspect, that all of these lies and the deceit and the cover-up that is now emerging has been essentially political because this is the only thing that he can run on. look, it's always the cover-up and never the original crime that gets these politicians into trouble. when i worked with president nixon in the early 1990s and the whitewater scandal was blowing up i remember president nixon said to me why did i go to the damn fire if nobody will ever learn from watergate and my mistakes. they never learn, alisyn. it is the same pattern over and over again. this has the potential to be fatal to barack obama's re-election effort. alisyn: that's a great quote, monica. thanks so much sharing that with us working with president nixon. >> thank you. bill: the mother of one of the victims murdered in libya now sp
in hempstead, new york. >>> there are new questions today about what the obama administration knew about the terror attack in benghazi compared to what it then told the american people. state department officials grilled by lawmakers on the response to the deadly attack on september 11th that claimed the lives of four americans. ambassador chris stevens, two navy seals there to protect him and a state department staffer. catherine herridge is live in washington. catherine, tell us more what he learned yesterday. >> reporter: thank you, allison and good morning. lawmakers are questioning whether the president's political agenda drove to security situation on the ground that led to the death of four americans. i would note the seals were not there to protect the ambassador. they were there to on a separate mission. as fox reported there was no demonstration at the consulate in benghazi fanned youtube video was not the reason for. that point was made abundantly clear at hearing. >> there were no protest. state department and others have that video. speaking of video, the one in california m
's ridiculously wrong it's beyond belief. >> greg: i want to compliment the obama administration for finding someone who makes debbie wa waserman schultz look competent. >> andrea: we are almost a month out from the original terrorist attack finally, president obama says i'll fix it in a calm way. you say it's not lie or coverup. is it incompetence? if it's incompetence -- >> dana: if they throw the "lie" word about romney and proposal for tax reform. but you can't actually look at the videos that prove that they were lying. ambassador stevens' remains are next to them, arriving in dover, they're blaming a video they knew, or should have known by that time, either the intelligence system is incredibly incompetent or somebody -- >> bobsomebody is covering it u. >> bob: you believe that? >> dana: last night, bret baier had a timeline. if you watch, that you could not walk away with any other conclusion. >> eric: hannity last night, set up jay carney saying i didn't say that. then a sound bite of him saying exactly that. >> dana: coming up, the obama campaign strategy. is it to taint mitt romne
's got to find some way to blunt it and he's got it make a stronger case fort obama administration and two, a stronger case against mitt romney than barak obama did last week. >> shep: is it your sense that this is turning on the national scale and it is in the big three on the east coast, but what's up with ohio? >> well, it's interesting. ohio -- actually a few states in the midwest. i don't think it's just ohio. wisconsin, look at iowa. part of it may be that it's the rust belt. certainly in the case of ohio is one out of eight jobs depends on the automobile industry and so people there remember the obama bailout of the auto industry and that helps a lot. there may be some regional differences. i don't think it's just one state. on the other hand, i do believe a rising tide lifts all boats. if romney starts to build support around the country, it will also increase in ohio and iowa and wisconsin states that are a little more resistance. conversely if he starts to sink, you'll see that in the swing states as well as the national polls. >> shep: sometimes it matters largely on how
, by not giving them as much information as we thought. he blamed all the false statements of the obama administration on the intelligence community and seemed to raise questions about the confidence of the intelligence community and in a discussion about iran, he said, we will know when they go to -- when they go to a break-out for the bomb. it seems to me, there is major tension between those two statements on the one hand, suggesting they are not competent enough to know what happened on the ground in libya but saying they will know for sure if iran decides to go for the bomb. >> on domestic policy, we heard joe biden do what his boss, barack obama, did not, hammer the 47% comoant that mitt romney said and was talking about how mitt romney believes that 30% of the american people are takers -- that's my mom, that's my dad, he sadism the obama campaign has to be very happy with what biden did there. i mean, i was surprised that the president didn't do it in the last debate. i think biden made a lot of strong points, i just don't know where -- did women find him likeable. the other thi
to be compelled to do anything under obama care, ryan said why is that they're suing the administration? that is almost on a side that was lost and then, it was over by the next question. but if you put them together, and you end up with television where you saw the demeanor the vice president had in regards to ryan, i think that undid the advantage in rhetoric that he had in carrying the debate. it was so disrespectful. i agree with chris wallace. it was sort of almost unprecedented and kond sending. i think in the end, if television, you lose. >> charles, do you think that this debate tonight moved the needle at all? >> i don't. the reason is that whether you decide that vice president won or lost, people don't end up in the booth voting for number two. so if you like one, he was likeable. the other wasn't. i don't think there was an affect on the vote. the question is will it affect the debate that's are coming up? that is the real heavy weight stuff between obama and romney. and i think that the objective, perhaps one advantage is that biden lay down is that in the actual arguments
